From September 1958 we have another use for the 'Big' Bedford cab, now attached to a machinery carrier base and similar in many ways to the Low Loader issued earlier in the year. This has the same winch but in place of a ramp there is a detachable rear axle...

Bedford Cabs
I couldn't resist buying this old Army Fuel Tanker that was going cheap and which had caught my eye because of the cab. As far as I know all the 1134 models have the old 'Big' Bedford cab. Then I started to think about it a bit more and remembered that the ...

New arrivals in June
Coming to the village this month has been another fascinating selection, including one or two models I have not seen before. The star of the show has to be the 242 Ghia Fiat 600 Jolly with a decent box too! This arrived in a massive box! That was necessary ...
